It’s a big, bad digital world we live in, and sadly, many are poorly equipped to deal with the perils and pitfalls that’re all too abundant on the Web.

I sadly saw it all too often in my days as a banker—the customers who fell victim to online scams, either too caught up in their hubris to think it’d ever happen to them, or those so desperate to get rich quick that they turned blind eyes to red flags that’d be glaringly obvious otherwise.

I’d cringe a little every time someone handed me a dubious-looking form, but no matter how much I’d try to warn and dissuade them from what they were about to do, it often fell on deaf ears, and you know what they say—”the customer’s always right.”

Except when those same customers would come in months later seeking consolidation loans or information on their accounts for the bankruptcies they wound up filing due to their unwise decisions.

But this doesn’t need to be everyone’s story—one can learn to navigate the murky waters of the digital landscape, no matter who they are or where they come from.

GIVEAWAY POST: TELUS x Read for the Cure — Authors and Tablets and Giving, Oh My!

With the Christmas season around the corner, we’re encouraged not to think so much about ourselves and everything we want to see under the tree, but moreso of others, keeping not only the people close to us in mind, but also all those served by various charities and programs around us who’ll always benefit from any extra help their communities can give.

This in mind, through the work I’ve done with TELUS through 2015, I’ve seen that they’re big into charitable action, making sizeable donations to benefits, running unique campaigns, and constantly staying involved in their communities, trying to build awareness of the diverse needs that people have to thrive in today’s world while working at improving things a bit at a time.

We’re really good at making life unnecessarily complicated.

Once upon a time, I’d carry the weight of the world on my shoulders. Not even metaphorically, though — if you want to know how notorious I’ve been for carrying everything but the kitchen sink on my back, here’s a diagram!

I call this “What’s in my bag?” or “Please don’t rob me.”

I never made things easy on myself — need to take some sweet baby photos? Bust out the SLR, charge the flash, adjust the diffuser and capture that perfect moment. Despite the world obviously moving toward single devices that do all the things, for some reason I felt it necessary to carry a phone, a tablet, my laptop and my drawing tablet with me wherever I went… but for what? In case I needed to hack a mainframe with a friend on the phone while reading an ebook for instructions, drawing schematics and playing a ridiculously amazing soundtrack? Seriously?

The more I clung to my old and outdated ways, the more I realized all my time was going into things that I could do way faster with a device that’d just handle everything for me. As a father, husband, blogger, and a very busy Team Lead in my 9-5 life, I — quite literally — need every second I can get…  and the Samsung Galaxy S6 was the perfect device for making my life easier!
